ALSO in exclusive talks to acquire Five 4 U
Broadliner ALSO intends to acquire Dutch Mac and graphic arts specialist Five 4 U, which is also present in Belgium and covers, from there, the French and Luxembourg markets. "Five 4 U is a perfect match for ALSO. Our portfolios are complementary. I am convinced that both Five 4U and ALSO will profit from the combination of the businesses", says Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO. "ALSO provides a broad international market access. At the same time the Benelux focus of Five 4 U will help ALSO to further increase its strong market share in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg", says Rien Slagter, CEO of Five 4 U. Five 4 U represents more than 50 vendors and has an international customer base of well-established resellers. They will also benefit from ALSO's broad portfolio of product and service offers. ALSO intends to leverage this given cross selling potential. ALSO expects to sign the business combination agreement in fall 2016 after the completion of the due diligence.
ALSO extends the reach of its WaaS platform
Germany: after France and Scandinavia (through ALSO offices in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden), broadliner ALSO has opened up the distribution of its WaaS to its German subsidiary. German resellers can from now offer a flexible and configurable Workplace-as-a-Service. The WaaS configurator, embedded in the ALSO Cloud Marketplace, gives an access to a variety of laptops, smartphones, tablets, cloud-based software solutions and peripherals which can be offered together to the end customers. According to the distributor, the WaaS model is, compared to leasing, more flexible, easier and more time efficient. Given the huge expectations of the distributor towards WaaS, it has built up a dedicated BU, managed by Malte Wigger. Switzerland ought to follow by the end of the year.
Broadliner ALSO has expanded its offering with the CANCOM AHP ENTERPRISE CLOUD (AHP) and now is the first marketplace to introduce these widely used enterprise cloud services with seamless, automated delivery. Convinced by the advantages of the solution ALSO will also implement the suite in its own organisation for roughly 4000 users.
"Enterprise customers from 250 users and up face the challenge to build an integrated yet efficient, secure and scalable IT-environment. With AHP customers benefit from a fully automated virtual workplace solution without having to compromise in usability, performance or user specific applications. This offering helps our resellers to step up in the value chain and deliver a complete and seamless solution to their customers", said Prof. Dr. Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO.
AHP brings together both public cloud services and customers' legacy applications in one, integrated and automated suite while offering comprehensive data transparency. Customers can provide their employees an always-on desktop experience with the highest security standards and user experience while benefitting from a perfectly transparent overview of IT-costs – down to the smallest granularity.
"We are very excited to partner with ALSO, the leading European solutions aggregator. Together we will enable resellers worldwide - initially excluding Germany - to higher value business in the cloud era with our AHP solution. We are happy to start the international expansion together with ALSO", said Rudolf Hotter, COO, CANCOM Group.
